Philanthropy

Today, 11 more children and young people will hear the devastating news that they have cancer. Young cancer patients need support not just to survive, but thrive - when they are on treatment and once it has ended to help get their lives back on track.

We are very grateful for the support we receive from generous philanthropists – whether individuals, trusts, senior volunteers or committee members – all of whom play an invaluable part in our fight for young lives against cancer.

CLIC Sargent relies almost entirely on voluntary donations to fund our work and we give all of our support to families for free.

Individuals and Trusts who donate significant gifts are essential to ensuring we can continue to fight for young lives against cancer. Yet at the moment, we can only reach two out of the three children and young people who need our support. We will fight tirelessly to change this and we can only do this with your support.

The difference you make

As one of our most valued supporters, you will be at the very heart of enabling a future where all children, young people and their families receive the support they need following a cancer diagnosis. 

We will work alongside you to ensure that your philanthropic objectives for supporting CLIC Sargent are realised and you can experience the difference your gift is making. We pride ourselves on providing bespoke support to those committing to us on such a significant level, to ensure that donating to CLIC Sargent continues to be a motivating and fulfilling experience.

Charitable Trusts and Foundations

The support of trusts and foundations is crucial to CLIC Sargent’s work. We are dedicated to working closely with trusts and foundations to fulfil our shared charitable endeavours, and we will take care of all the practicalities - whether it’s finding an appropriate project that fits with your objectives and interests, providing a progress report or arranging a personal visit to see our services.

Projects supported by trust funding

Miss Agnes H Hunter’s Trust has been part-funding a CLIC Sargent Young Person’s Social Worker based at the Western General Hospital in Edinburgh since 2001. This post helps to reduce the impacts specific to young people with cancer living in the East of Scotland, covering Edinburgh, Fife, East Lothian, West Lothian and the Borders.

A Grants Administrator from the Trust says: "Our founder, Miss Hunter, had a special interest in supporting people with cancer and we welcome the work of CLIC Sargent in developing a much needed service for teenagers and young people which helps them to increase in self-confidence and independence and minimise the impact of cancer on their lives."

“Our Trustees have supported this particular project because they recognise the special difficulties facing this age group when, even without cancer, they are going through a period of transition developing emotional maturity and independence and hopefully planning for the future - which will all be restricted by cancer. They also are aware of the lack of suitable facilities for this age group in hospitals.”
